    (Part 1: Tupac)
    Sometimes its hard, to wake up in the morning
    Mind full of demons, I dont wanna hear 'em anymore
    Got me heartbroken, fine, So many babies screamin
    Cuz they seeing destruction before they see a human being
    So they start smokin weed, we'll never get our day
    Until we learn to pray, keep our families safe
    Cuz they all broken, why? Two ghetto birds die
    Before we learn to fly
    Somebody else can say im pokin guns, smokin weed
    Can all make the change so im told but i havent seen a change unfold
    I keep hopin, please! If you prefer to breath
    Communities in need, of people that we lead
    Keep your eyes open now, then only say I try
    Until the day I die, I promised to be wise
    With my heart open, greed, brings only misery
    A weight of tragedy, so I stay sucker free
    Only a few chosen rise, my ghetto queens rise
    Dont be afraid to try, too many of us die
    For the thought of hopen wise, my brothers speak wise
    They focus on the prize, till everybody dies

    (Part 2: Eminem)
    We could only learn to take, our anger and our hate
    Control our mental state, settle down and just set it straight
    Maybe we could learn to take, a second to pump the brakes
    But we said it, regret it later, and let it escalade
    Cuz by then its just too late, theres so much we can take
    Theres only so much someone can swallow and tolerate
    Till the point that he just breaks, snaps and thats all it takes
    You think that we was learnin from other rappers mistakes
    But we aint, his brain will go against
    With every artist comes an image he portrays
    And a picture that he paints
    But in the midst of all this anger and this gangs
    Never once did you hear me say I'm a gangsta
    And I aint hear no complaints
    But I know, that I will always continue to grow
    As long as I lead, and never follow noone else's shadow
    There will never be another me, and that I will guarantee
    Its that why I remain sucker free, to this day
    The game, will never be the same
    No matter how much fame or success they attain
    There will never be another me
    And no matter what they do, there will never be another you
    You can search but you'll never find
    You can try to rewind time, but in your hearts and your minds
    We will never die, we are forever alive
    When we continue going, one day at a time

    (Part 3: Outlawz #1)
    Dont get caught in the publicity, and caught in the hype
    Rappers are, regular people minus money and lights
    Searchin for, fortune and fame and super stardom
    All the jewelry, all the cars, who screws the hardest
    Now the Hip Hop Police's surveillance is watchin
    And the kids think beef is their only option
    Outlawz, poor and filthy, guilty as charged
    My memories they can die, my -Makaveli- lives on
    You think the industry is fun, and no pity with guns
    And when your money is up, thats when your enemies come
    So if he died and came back, would he try to save rap
    We needin a change, the drama remains

    (Part 4: Outlawz #2)
    I spend my whole life,(yeah) fightin myself
    That, I cant win, so I'm invitin some help
    And every now and then, I take rights on the left
    I'm still just like a kid, lookin for stripes on my belt
    That day is a fight in itself
    So I just pray and hope God take a light to myself
    No matter how much I try to stay alive, I'mma die, mad
    Still standin and in love with my pride

    (Part 5: Outlawz #3)
    My hard frivilous beef, we passed that
    Im tryna keep some in c-comin and then collect on my ass cap
    But rappers in the game aint changed
    And I finally realized that we not in the same game
    The hatin will never end, so I guess I'll deal with it
    Them 4-5 a cop, chillers just I'm still with it
    Them streets is military, you gotta be a soldier
    Gotta stay lirry and keep your eyes on the Rollers
    They do what they gotta do to shackle and hold us
    So we gotta do it, we gotta do to keep growin
    One way at a time, keep the faith in your mind
    When we continue growin, one day at a time (Damn!)
